Enjoy a beautiful holiday in Koh Phangan.

The island of Koh Phangan is located on the eastern coast of southern Thailand. The island is a popular destination for backpackers and travellers during the dry season. Monsoons from September to December mean that the island is best suited to travel from January onward. The island is filled with relaxing resorts and perfect outlooks for sunrises and sunsets.

HomeAway has a variety of accommodations for every type of traveller or group: Koh Phangan villas and large apartments are available, as well as smaller accommodation on Koh Phangan for romantic getaways. HomeAway rentals offer a variety of amenities, from beachfront views to full kitchens.

For travellers who may be looking for something slightly different, HomeAway offers holiday rentals on nearby islands as well. The island of Koh Samui, directly to the east, provides beautiful beaches and livelier towns. Phuket is located on the other side of the mainland, and is Thailand's largest island. Phuket is an important historic part of Thailand, and as such has many sights worth visiting.

Things to do

Thong Nai Pan Noi:

Located about 45 minutes from the tourist centre of Haad Rin, the beach at Thong Nai Pan Noi is a quiet spot for relaxing. Soft sand and perfectly clear blue waters are complemented by several restaurants and bars.

Join the studio at sunset at Asana, Pranayama, and meditation classes. The teachers at Love Yoga are highly experienced and customise each class to suit students' individual needs.

Full Moon Party:

The Full Moon Party is a weekly affair that is well known on the island. Mostly catered to tourists, this wild party is full of diverse types and boasts a unique bar. The Full Moon Party is hosted by several bars in the area, and has a rotating schedule of DJs.

Diamond Muay Thai Boxing:

The Diamond Muay Thai Boxing Camp offers Muay Thai boxing classes for beginners and experts. Here, visitors can learn the basics and advanced techniques of this world-renowned fighting form. Classes are great exercise and a fun way to learn about Thai culture.

Salad Beach:

Located on the northwest corner of the island, Salad Beach and resort is a quiet getaway on the island of Koh Phangan. Accessible by car or motorbike, Salad Beach has the best vantage point for sunsets on the entire island. Visitors can enjoy eating at the Haad Salad Villa, a nearby restaurant with a fantastic ocean view.

Haad Chao Phao Beach:

Haad Chao Phao Beach is located in a quiet corner of Koh Phangan island. A few resorts dot the beach, ranging from inexpensive to luxury locations. Several bars and restaurants also surround Haad Chao Phao Beach, with the Seaflower Haven beach bar highly recommended.

Weather in Koh Phangan

Koh Phangan lies on the eastern side of Thailand, and therefore has monsoon season from September to December. Holidaying during this time is not recommended, as the rain is essentially constant, and flooding can make the terrain dangerous. During the dry and cool season, in the earliest part of the calendar year, temperatures in Thailand range from 18 to 32°C.

Travel to Koh Phangan

Travel to Koh Phangan is best conducted by plane and ferry. Visitors can fly into the nearby island of Samui Airport (USM) and take the ferry to the island. The San Chao Road leads from the ferry harbour in the northeast to the centre of the island. Roads are clearly signposted for the towns they lead to, most of which lie along the beachfront on Koh Phangan.

The villa was equipped with everything we needed for our stay and surpassed our expectations. The villa manager was friendly, helpful and welcoming, she made us feel like nothing was a problem and was on hand to offer advice about the surrounding area. The villa was cleaned daily to a high standard. The whole accommodation was decorated to a high standard and the views are absolutely stunning. We would not hesitate to recommend to family and friends. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

It was very quiet but we loved it. We were 6 persons and it was fantastic. The villa is very big and the rooms are really nice, especially the two rooms on the second floor they have a beautiful ocean view. The pool is very big as well. The german house manager and the houskeeping Nuan and Jaroen were very helpful and very friendly. The beach is beautiful and there are some nice reataurants and shops in the smal village. For sure we will come back and enjoy the beautiful island Kophangan and the nice villa.
